How is this trope functionally different from Automaton Horses?

There are plenty of examples here that don't involve unrealistic endurance and stamina.

Table Top Games, Dn D: I am inventing House Rules: the Party of 6 includes 2 characters with ride skill and owns 4 horses. Each horse needs 30 minutes maintenance, morning and evening. As long as they obey orders from the people with ride skill, then horses will be efficient, OTHERWISE, Reality Ensues

The Deverry books avert this so hard, when a message needs to be taken to the local gwerberht (sp?) as quickly as possible, Jill rides hard -and switches horses at stations along the way. Many many many mentions are made of the horses being or given to others to care for after even a relatively short trip.

One thing that never ever ever came up in the Spirit movie? Unless the Native Americans removed them, those iron shoes were going to be hell on Spirit after a couple years. Hooves grow. A badly-made or -fitting shoe can make them split.
